MEET MAARTEN Founder & DESIGNER SILK JEWELLERY & SXM STUDIO
Full of passion I work intensively with our silversmiths to excel in a beautiful, timeless and sustainable handmade silver product that can last a lifetime. With SILK it is my mission to bring a top quality product. Down to the last detail I accept nothing less than excellent quality at a reasonable price.

Every year we launch new models, all fitting within the SILK concept; characterised as Asian designs with a western touch. These designs originate from studio SXM, which we design in close collaboration with our Indonesian silversmiths and Kim Kolijn, our own designer and goldsmith in the Netherlands. I get my satisfaction from making beautiful sustainable products in an honest way. SILK has been further developed in such a way that the collection is rock solid. The SILK customer is very clear in what she does and does not want.

In addition to collection items for SILK, I create various collections within Studio SXM. Studio SXM was founded synonymous with adventure, which makes my designer heart beat faster. I like to step into the unknown without logic and enjoy the creation process without being hindered in advance by what, for example, a calibrated sales channel will find for a new release. I am a creator, a free spirit and within SXM my designer journey finds its own way. Studio SXM is my creative playground.
The designer speaking
Studio SXM is a creative playground and a testing ground for creation, where I have been able to express my playful mind for many years and where the collections of SILK Jewelery are designed, which have been on the market since 2004. The creation studio where I can play and experiment, starting from scratch without hindrance. Creating free from bounderies, free from the built identity that a brand entails. A studio that creates from inspiration, outside the fixed structure, the fixed brand concept. Our creativity is given maximum space here.

Complete collections are born here, collaborations with other designers are established, we develop on behalf of third parties, ánd create individual items, icons, limited editions or one-offs. Nothing is certain in advance, that is the basis of the SXM playground.

Authentic techniques
All SXM creations are inspired by travel, buildings, shapes, cultures, currents, anything and everything. Creations made of high-quality materials where authentic techniques are mixed with the most modern technologies such as 3D and laser.

This can vary from the classic 925 sterling silver and leather that we are used to from SILK Jewellery, But also from Brass, or 9 crt Gold, black rhodium, epoxy resin, stones or even rope, we see no obstacles in this either. It is our mission to continuously bring various designs that become an extension of someone's personality.

De CREATIVE PLAYGROUND STUDIO SXM
STUDIO SXM is de creatieve playground van de oprichter en designer van SILK Jewellery. SILK is opgericht in 2014 door het dynamische en avontuurlijke Nederlandse duo Heidi van Leeuwen & Maarten Smetsers. Het fashionable trendy sieraden merk gaf een nieuwe dimensie aan hun creativiteit en reizen over de wereld en hun ultieme droom tot leven.

In 2017 volgde hun lang gekoesterde stoutmoedige plan om een apart merk te lanceren; een wilde dieren collectie met een compleet eigen FIERCE uitstraling. FIERCE by SILK gaf uiting aan de behoefte om indrukwekkende, gedurfde items te creëren met een symbolische betekenis. Na bijna 20 jaar samenwerken als duo, ontstond bij designer Maarten langzaam maar zeker meer en meer de sterke behoefte om vrijer te creëren, dan binnen de geijkte paden en de ontstane richtlijnen van een merk.
De rest is historie.
